Format: Paperback
This is a book one just wants to hate. The two authors waste pages writing praise for one another. They give their workout recipes (over 60) cutesy-poo names like "Saturday Night Fever" and "Snookie". Much of the book amounts to promotional messages for the programs by Heart Zones, of which one of the authors just happens to be CEO. Most disturbing, perhaps, the authors do not appear to have any medical or scientific credentials to backup their position as authorities.
Nevertheless, as a beginner, I found the book quite useful. If you can read past all the junk, the authors have some very simple, down-to-earth approaches to exercise and training with a heart monitor. And they appear to have adequate scientific backup. They define heart rate zones somewhat differently from most other writers, but their approach is easier to follow from a practical point-of-view. Their detailed workout recipes are easy to understand. (There is a neat graphical representation.) Even if you never do a single one of their workouts, you will get a lot of useful ideas for your own. Their formula for estimating maximum heart rate was far more accurate for me than the traditional one (220-age) which others recommend. Their Delta (Orthostatic) Heart Rate test provides an easy check for overtraining, an issue which had concerned me.
The book definitely was worth the price and more-or-less worth the time.

Several people who work for Sally Edwards wrote glowing reviews of theis book. I think their are some ethical issues in reviewing a book written by your employer or business partner.
Check HEARTZONE.COM for the people who work for Sally.

This is a good book on giving you all the best practices for a good cardio work out and what it means to be aerobic, anaerobic, etc. If you want to make sure that you are cycling at your maximum and optimum level I would recommend this book.
